Summary

SiC fibers with various C/Si atomic ratio have been prepared. These fibers were obtained by curing of polycarbosilane fibers with electron beam irradiation and pyrolysis. Microstructure, thermal stability, oxidation resistance, and creep resistance of these fibers were examined. Near-Stoichiometric SiC fiber(Si-1.05 C-0.02O), which was obtained under controlled fabrication conditions, exhibited excellent mechanical and thermal properties.
